candidate elizabeth warren. i use the word desperate on purpose. after releasing one ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race, after his staffers were caught childishly mocking native americans with the whole tomahawk chop and after the cherokee nation asked scott brown to apologize for that and he refused to do so, after all that scott brown has put out another ad today again attacking elizabeth warren on the ground of race. they must have some poll numbers showing a race based campaign is working wonders for him. it's not a whisper campaign, anonymous flyers on windshields like we used to expect. this comes straight from the campaign unapologetically. just to be clear as a bell about what the story is. it's not that scott brown has ever disproven or anybody has ever disproven that elizabeth warren has native american ancestry. it's not been disproven. it's not a lie. scott brown's whole beef with her, the whole basis for his u.s. senate campaign against her based on race is that he thinks she doesn't look native american to him. these eyeballs don't lie. >> professor warren clai

describing the staffers as down right racist. senator brown challenged his opponent elizabeth warren's claim she is of native-american heritage. she used the minority status for professional eastern personal gain. last night brown's campaign released a statement offering regrets and sent out an apology. senator brown has spoken to his entire staff, including the individuals involved in this unacceptable behavior -- and issued them one and only warning that this type of conduct will not be tolerated. he regrets that members of his staff did not live up to the high standards that the people of massachusetts expect and deserve. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton is suggesting that this month's attack on the u.s. consulate in lib why may have had ties to an al qaeda affiliate in the region. secretary clinton's comments which came during a special u.n. meeting add to the administration's changing explanation about what happened the night four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya were killed. initially officials said the attack was part of a protest about an obscure youtube video t

-read opinion page. katrina vanden heuvel in "the washington post" writes this. elizabeth warren, the people's champion. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. go ahead. no, it's all right. i was just thinking about a joke i heard yesterday. go ahead. >> throughout the campaign, mark halperin, warren has delivered an unabashed populist message. she first made the common-sense case that no one succeeded alone. that successful businesspeople depend on what we've built together, an educated work force, roads and transport to deliver their products, a rule of law vital to working markets. this isn't a radical notion, but when adopted and badly phrased by president obama, it sparked the frenzied republican "we built it" campaign. warren will focus on the core issues and ask massachusetts voters to decide who is on their side. and if she wins, she'll not only lead a new generation of progressive reformers into the senate, but also begin to teach democrats how to fight for working people once more." mark? >> vanden heuvel, not ratner, on that. >> not ratner. >> we don't have ratner here to dispute. >> just to gam

under elizabeth warren. elizabeth warren is the person generally credited with coming up with the idea of the cfpb and encourage the president to set up the agency. he did not choose her for the job. he did choose richard cordray in a sort of contentious appointment at the beginning of this yearhe this has been running it ever since. host: explain one thing for us. it reads that -- that's a reference to the fact that it's fairly new. i want to show you a clip from a house hearing last week where congressman japan's ruling question the credibility of the new agency. [video clip] >> you came before us six months ago as an unlawful appointee and six months later nothing has changed. dodd-frank has made you a very powerful appointee, but it has not made you a legitimate appointee, and it has not made you accountable. it is certainly not personal to you. but as long as this big legal cloud hangs over you and your agency, your credibility and efficacy of both you and your agency are compromised. >> i would say you have a tremendous credibility, particularly with college students you are help

with a very very strong endorsement of elizabeth warren, which means a lot of get out to vote and union people showing up for support. >> stephanie: you talk about the kind of people he has hired and the kind of campaign he is running. as you say this is a shrewd man who is incredibly thin skinned it is very likely he has offended himself against the pivotal figure he told everybody he was three years ago. >> and paul ryan has the same problem. these two guys have bought their own celebrity. >> stephanie: i'm serious. >> it says so right here in the newspaper. >> stephanie: exactly. warren has pulled ahead, but not by much, right? >> i think the poll average -- because there's a funky [ inaudible ] boston harold poll which has scott brown ahead and that has brought the average down. i think she is probably closer to being ahead by three or four but it's extraordinarily fluid, and there are local factors that will play into it. john keerny is probably going to lose to an out-gay republican. >> stephanie: wow. >> his family was involved in this off-shore gambling thing, a

chants and tomahawk chops at a campaign rally. senator brown has challenged elizabeth warren's claim that she is of native american heritage. brown's campaign released a statement last night offering regrets. not a full apology, saying his staffers got their one and only warning on that. jim vandehei still with us. you're talking about this morning that race in missouri, todd akin still has a chance, reports politico. >> yeah. i mean, the polls are not great for todd akin ever since he made those comments that got him in a heck of a lot of trouble in missouri and certainly with republicans he's now down in a state that republicans have to win if they want to win back control of the senate. and what's interesting is it's a little -- it's a case study in the divide inside the republican party. you have rick santorum, newt gingrich, other conservatives rallying around akin and calling on washington leaders to put money into that race. they still think it's winnable. in an interview with us, akin said, listen, my eyes have been opened. i now see how many people don't understand conservat
